Research interests

Professor Duan's research focuses on developing nucleic acid aptamer technology platforms for cancer biotechnology, focusing on cancer stem cell-targeted drug, siRNA and miRNA delivery using nanoparticles as well as aptamer-based molecular imaging for early detection of cancer and accurate staging. He heads a cross-disciplinary and translational research team consisting of cancer biologists, oncologists, molecular and cell biologists, material scientists, organic chemists, drug developers, pharmaceutical scientists and mechanical and electronic engineers across several faculties, research centres and teaching hospitals in Deakin. He is also involved in developing novel aptamer-based and microfluidic lab-on-a-chip devices for the application in biodefense, forensic medicine and rapid diagnostics at the point of care. He has published over 160 peer-reviewed original research papers and review articles in international refereed journals, with an h-index of 30 (average citation per article of 25).  Professor Duan has filed 5 international patents on cancer stem related aptamers.  He serves as the Editor-in-Chief for the journal “Drug Design, Development and Therapy” (https://www.dovepress.com/drug-design-development-and-therapy-journal).


Professors Duan has been frequently invited to address international conferences on biomedical research, drug development and molecular medicine.
